  • If you are using a balm (like Chapstick) -- because you have extremely dry, cracking lips -- then you put that on FIRST.
    Also, you need to let it sit for a while after you put it on.
    The point there is to let the balm do its intended job -- as a moisturizer for the chapped/cracked lips -- but to give it a long enough time to "settle". If you try to put yr lippy on top of the balm RIGHT AWAY, it will just turn everything into a goopy, awful-looking mess.

    If you wait a while (3-4 minutes) after applying the balm, then the balm should act like a primer, and the lippy should glide on pretty smoothly over it.
    Decent results.

    A couple of things:

    • You should only fuck with balm-under-lipstick if yr lips are VERY dry and chapped. Otherwise, to do the job of a primer/lipliner... just use a primer/lipliner.

    • This is even more of a thing with matte lippies, which are more drying than gloss lippies.

    As for the gloss -- that would go on top of the lippy, if you want it to be shinier.
    That's a totally separate issue from the balm.

    You could even use all 3 of these things, potentially (balm + lippy + gloss), if you have a major dry-lips problem AND you want a super shiny finish.

  • If anything, I like types that don't make the lips look too different from the original look. More "enchant" than "transform". lol

  • I only use Burt's Bees or Lypsyl lip balm. Chapstick and other brands dry out and irritate my lips.

  • I don't wear anything on top cause I usually wear matte lipstick. Occasionally I'll put on lip balm on my lips before I put on lipstick.

  • @redeyemindtricks this is your type of question haha

    But usually when I wear lipstick I use a clear or just sparkly lip gloss over top if I want it to shine.

  • I wear lipstick but I don't wear lipgloss so these options confused me? Lip gross is gross feeling. I like lipsticks, mostly creams or matte formulations though.
